Sequans Announces New LTE Design Wins
November 14, 2013

PARIS – November 14, 2013 – Sequans Communications S.A. (NYSE: SQNS) today announced that its pre-certified EZLinkLTE™ modules have been selected by three manufacturers, all first-time customers for Sequans, to power new tablet and mobile PC devices for the US market. EZLinkLTE is the family name for Sequans’ single-mode LTE module product line. EZLinkLTE modules combine baseband, RF, and key interfaces in a single package, offering device manufacturers significant time-to-market advantages.

This announcement follows the recent certification by Verizon Wireless of two of Sequans’ EZLinkLTE modules: 1) VZ20Q surface mountable module for CE and M2M devices, and 2) VZ20M M.2 interface module for tablets and PCs. Sequans also offers VZ21M, a VZ20M variant that includes GNSS for location services.

Sequans’ VZ20Q and VZ20M EZLinkLTE modules are certified compliant with Verizon Wireless Open Network specifications and operate on LTE bands 4 and 13. They comprise Sequans’ Mont Blanc LTE platform baseband chip and all other elements necessary for a complete LTE modem system. These include an LTE-optimized transceiver, a complete dual-band RF front-end for bands 4 and 13, key interfaces, LP-DDR SDRAM, embedded boot Flash, and VC-TCXO all in a single, compact package.

The new EZLinkLTE-based devices are expected to contribute to Sequans’ revenues primarily in the second half of 2014 and beyond.
